In the spirit of posting handmade summer clothing before the snow falls, here’s another one I finished this past summer: a rainbow maxi dress for Clementine. This was one of those ideas I had in my head from the moment I designed the fabric; I intentionally included rainbow shades in this line for just such a purpose. For those who don’t know, this is my recent line for Cloud 9 Fabrics, Lotus Pond, which shipped last spring and can still be found here and there in shops. The pattern is a mashup of the Flashback Tee (I cut it off a couple inches below the arms and skipped the sleeves) and the Rainbow Dress Tutorial, with an extra tier of fabric added in to make it longer. I think I may have also added an inch to each tier, height-wise, but I cut it out right after Lotus Pond first shipped in spring of 2014, so I can’t actually remember.
It fits her with enough room for a little twirl!
Evidence she’s always been silly:
